    Hey guys,

    I have an automatic unloading, 5 shot top break H&R 38 S&W 3rd edition (?) 3rd variation that my great grandpa used in his swamp trapping days. I want to restore it to functional shape but it is missing a few pieces. im not sure of the terminology of them but I will do my best.

    The coil spring for the double action mechanisim-I have this piece but it is mildly deformed
    The flat spring that returns the trigger after firing-gone
    hand grips-(obviously) they were broken in an altercation with a gator

    Thanks for any help you guys can give,

    Hi, Glad you posted. Your pics help me out a lot. Your gun is nearly Identical to mine, that I have been trying to positively identify (http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/threads/h-r-break-top-38s-w-help-please.168056/#post-1530710). Numrich Gun Parts has the grips for your gun (original rubber or walnut). I think, Numrich may also have the trigger spring, but it is difficult to tell. The trigger spring has many slight variations. Probably best to call them and discuss it with a sales associate. The seer spring may be problematic. Numrich is out of stock on them. Bobs Gun Parts may have them, but they are closed till the 18th.
